Yearly Fundraisers

 

PUMPKIN RAFFLE

During the last week of October, we raffle off pumpkins which have been decorated by staff members.  Students can purchase raffle tickets for 25 cents each, and throw their tickets in for whichever pumpkin(s) they like the best.  Winners are announced on Friday, and pumpkins are taken home that afternoon.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

This year our Book Fair will be November 8th & 9th.  On the 9th we’ll have a Family Night from 5:30-7:30pm.  We’re looking forward to seeing you there!

FAMILY FUN NIGHTS/DANCES

Twice a year we put on dances or Family Fun Nights; once near Halloween and once near Valentine’s Day.  These events are the talk of the school, and feature dancing in one half of the gym and activities/food in the other half.  Admission is free but we do sell tickets which you can use for the food & activities!

KIDS ONLY SHOPPING EXTRAVAGANZA

This one is not a large fundraiser…the major reason we put this on is because the kids love it so much.  In the months leading up to the event, parents/guardians and community members can donate items in the front office (chotchkies, household items, most any non-clothing item you’re ready to part with that still has a bit of life in it.)  The PTO will organize and stage these items, and on a Monday in the beginning of December, every class will get a chance to come through and purchase items to give to their family & friends on Christmas.  All of the items are priced very low, starting at 25 cents and moving up to $2.00 for the most expensive things.  This way every single student can come away with presents for their loved ones.

SMITH SMACKEROOS

Every Spring, we sell tickets for our Smith Smackeroos raffle.  The raffle features cash prizes for those whose tickets are drawn, and special prizes for students who sell winning tickets.  It is our biggest fundraiser of the year!  We’ll have more information up on the specifics of this year’s raffle as it draws closer.
